Lavender is more than just a pleasant scent. The plant can calm your nerves after an especially stressful day, help balance sensitive, acne-prone skin, and even provide structure to dull, lifeless hair.
If you haven't yet reaped the benefits of a lavender-rich product, let the powerful plant take over your regimen by trying the refreshing items below.

Lavender meets clove and geranium in this hydrating spray that protects strands from environmental forces such as pollution and sun.
